“If my team are healthy and happy, this will be reflected in their patient care” – Dr Helen Mclean
On Monday, May 8th the Victoria Park Dental Specialists team took part in an afternoon of health and wellbeing at the Southside Clinic in Unley. The Southside Clinic was established by Dr Andrea Robertson as a multi-functional clinic combining osteopathy services, nutrition, pilates, yoga, and extend barre classes.
The workshop included a number of activities and the team was educated on the importance of maintaining a high level of mobility and total body wellbeing.
Nutrition and naturopathy
The team learned the effect sugar can have on their body and how it affects you throughout the workday. We’re often guilty of handing out treats around the office ourselves and it was definitely a valuable insight into how and why the body reacts to these sorts of treats.
Yoga and stretching
One of the growing concerns around the Victoria Park office is the way in which the team spends the day sitting in the office and leaning over patients. Correct posture is incredibly important for maintaining healthy movement and productivity throughout the day. When our team feels physically tired through incorrect posture, it radiates to our patients.
We practised yoga and learned a number of useful stretches to be used throughout the workday.
